Rick Shrader‘s Review:
I ordered and read this short book by Ironside on Kindle. Personally I love to read Ironside and have learned much from this solid Bible teacher of a generation ago. Ironside was a dispensational premillennialist and a pretribulationalist. His comments in this short book are good and consistent about the rapture. The one oddity that Ironside seemed to hold was that although only the church would be raptured, all saints of all ages will return with Christ at His glorious return. I can only suppose he meant that the spirits “of just men made perfect” will come to be united with their resurrected bodies at this time. If he believed in a general resurrection for all saints at the time of the rapture he doesn’t say so in this book.
He writes, “Before the judgments fall the Lord Jesus will descend from heaven with a shout, the dead in Christ will be raised, and the living saints changed, and we shall be snatched away, caught up to be with Him before the indignation is poured out on this guilty scene.”
